Still trying to get into the swing of things!

I don't know what it is but I always have such a hard time to get back into the routines after the holidays and I end up being behind on everything. Maybe it's because I really look forward to some time off from school and I'm exhausted after Thanksgiving and Christmas parties but I just feel like a blob. Somehow I have gotten some stitching done, it was probably when I was blobbing in front of the TV and fire place. STO had a Jan 1st challenge and I pulled out the Travelling Stitcher and it stitched up quickly. I didn't change a thing on it since the threads came with and I had 32 ct lambswool at home.

And STO also had a WIP challenge. Just stitch on a WIP a bit in January instead of starting something new. This little Dimples Design bug has been in the UFO pile for probably 7-8 years since it was driving me bonckers. With an ott light I had a much easier time with it and finished it in 4 days. Clearly I have been overestimating my ability to see without that light.

Finally out of the woods on Christmas Village from Prairie Schooler. Seriously, that's a lot of trees and I almost put this project away. But I pulled it out again after my little finishes and it's whole lot more fun now.

I have 1 fun new start and another one that I'm kitting up so hopefully I'm back with more updates soon.

If there's anyone out there that still stops by, thank you for visiting and for every sweet comment!
